#REDIRECT [[Firefox#Adding search engines]]
====Q: When I try to add a search engine to the list of engines in firefox, it doesn't get added.====
<b>A:</b> This is because firefox writes the files to <code>/opt/mozilla/lib/firefox/searchplugins</code>, which is, by default, readable only by root. You can either <code>chmod o+w</code> this folder, or run firefox as root when you want to install a search engine.
====Q: And how do you remove an engine?====
<b>A:</b> To remove search engines, remove the appropriate search engine files in /opt/mozilla/lib/firefox/searchplugins. Next time you start Firefox the engine won't be in the list.
